    I still say it is RPI’s coach Seth Appert who keeps voting a “first place” for the Union Skating Dutchmen.
    His team got whipped twice this weekend by UC, and is now 0-7-0 of late. Maybe he thinks that if he builds them up, his club looks better.

      Is there any overlap between the USCHO and USA Today voters?

      • Leggs2

        No idea, zach, but welcome to a fellow UC grad!

        • zacharybrandon

          Thanks
          it is interesting that Union is getting a first place vote in both polls. I think they are a very good team, but certainly not #1. I can see why RPI coach would vote for us. We absolutely own them (20-4-4 over last 9 years) with a bunch of blowouts recently

            I’m from the Ned Harkness years. Rebirth of ice hockey at Union. Oh what a time…

  • Leggs2

    As for those casting votes, I know what “coaches” are, and what “beat writers” are. But just what are “sports professionals”??

  • arcticman

    How in the world can Minnesota stay at #2 with losses to MI Tech and MN State?
    Whomever is casting votes will probably vote for Obama based on the similar lack of substance in campaigns.
    BTW, BU fans deserve better than the ranking their team has.

    • Joseph Crowley

      BU fans are just happy to have our first win over North Dakota in Grand Forks, thank you very much!

      • sioux rule

        I was at both games. 2 evenly matched teams and it was entertaining hockey.

    • http://www.facebook.com/stork023 Derek Storkel

      Yeah but people fall to consider that MN sometimes trains through games like these

      • arcticman

        I pray you are kidding.

  • Hockey21

    I agree with arcticman. I’m a Gophers fan and they looked pathetic this weekend. The fact that they remain at #2 means nothing, they still can’t get their act together. I’m sure they’ll put all the pieces together at some point- but right now they are not the second best team in the country.

    • Fan Man

      Maybe the coaches are just glad they were able to win a Friday Night game for once… Maybe Mankato is not as bad as people think they are…. Either way, UND dropping a spot after blowing a third period lead to a GOOD team and the Goof balls staying #2 after skimping by Canisius, USA18, and now MSU does make a person wonder who in the heck is voting in these polls!

  • Sueh8er

    This article just reenforces what I already know, all of you are obsessed with the gophers!!!! Thank you. You must all be closet gopher fans otherwise you would not come here on a daily basis and comment on them. If you are not a gopher fan, don’t worry about them so much, they will be just fine. The season is early. we will see who gets to the frozen 4 in time.

    • arcticman

      You fail to answer a simple question, which is typical of other postings I have seen you make. Oh, maybe I should put four !!!! after my statement to make it seem more pertinent. Hey everybody, look at me!!!! Next you’ll probably write in all caps!!!! BTW, as a MN native I believe your name in hostile and abusive and dictates that you are obsessed with North Dakota!!!!

      • Sueh8er

        You are an idiot. No, not obsessed, I just dislike everything about “SUE” hockey. I could care less what you think about my name. Do you like the periods better?? You sound like you could use a crying towel.

        • arcticman

          Name calling, typical of your posts. Your statement “I dislike everything about “SUE” hockey” does dictate obsession. Please get some help. Also, you probably qualify for some sort of disability in Minnesota.

          • Sueh8er

            No clue, typical of your posts.

          • arcticman

            Weak response. All mouth, no trousers.

          • Sueh8er

            Wow, I am beginning to think that you are obsessed with me. I hope you voted “NO” to the marriage amendment today. Have a good life. I have one suggestion for you, take the whole pill, don’t break them in half.

          • arcticman

            And now homophobia. Your comebacks are childish. You do need help buddy, please get some.

      • sioux rule

        Nice box. Bwahahaha.
